Cookie Swap Tutorial

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments for the Just Rite Blog Hop.  Many of you mentioned you would like to come to my Cookie Swap and receive the ornament.  Since most of you, probably all, do not live near me so I thought I would post a tutorial on how to make it.  It is very easy.  So lets get started.

This is the product I used:
Classic Squares LG S4-126, die#3 & 7. Classic Squares SM S4-128, die#3. Snowflake S5-017, accents.  Create A Flake 2, small accent.  Labels 9 S4-233, Labels Trio S3-147, Tags Trio S3-148
Times New Roman Font, Uppercase 25pt.(JB-08060), Lowercase 15pt(JB-08650), Favorite Occasions Set (JB-08690), Something Sweet Set (JB-08775)
Chamoi E35, Atyou Spica Lipstick (GLLIP), Blossom (GLBLO), Mint(GLMNT)
Tsukineko Memento tuxedo black, Stazon Timber Brown, Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Vintage photo, Colorbox pigment black ink
Black Detail embossing powder
White gel pen, craft cardstock, red cardstock, white satin ribbon, 3" ric-rac ribbon, 5" & 7" strips of 1/4" sheer ribbon,  3D white paint, thick mounting foam, stylus, clear plastic (from packaging) 
1. Cut two craft cardstock from Classic Squares LG, die#7.  Score each side of 1st one @ 3/8" in & 7/8" in.  Fold.  Cut each corner out (like picture).  Now center Classic Squares SM, die#3.  Cut out.  Cut clear plastic with Classic Squares LG, die #3.  Adhere.  Tape box together.
2. Score 2nd one (bottom) @ 7/16" & 15/16".  Fold.  Cut each corner.  Tape box together.
3. Cut/Emboss two Create A Flake 2, accent.  Cut/Emboss Snowflakes, accents.  One each.  Ink edges with vintage photo ink.
4. Stamp Gingerbread man in tuxedo black ink on craft cardstock.  Color in.
5. Stamp "Homebaked" (font 25pt.) & "with (15pt.) Love" (25pt.) with Stazon Timber brown. Cut & layer on red cardstock.
6. Place "cookies" into bottom box with mounting foam.  Add 3D white paint for icing.  Let dry.
7. Adhere sheer red ribbon, then ric-rac ribbon.  Adhere Gingerbread Man, and sayings with mount foam to top of box.  Adhere top box to bottom box on sides, to keep together. 

Now wasn't that pretty easy.  Regarding the rest of the set.  It is pretty self-explanatory.  But the cookie sleeve is made from the liner that your bacon comes on.  I know what you are thinking, but it worked perfectly.  Just cut and sew along the sides.  On both the invitation and the cookie sleeve I used a brad, paper circle, and embroidery thread for the closure.  Hope you enjoyed.  Have a wonderful day!!
